Altor Networks- acquired by Juniper

Company Icon: 

Altor Networks, Inc., a Juniper Networks Company, is the leading innovator and provider of security for virtual data centers and clouds. The company developed the world’s first firewall purpose-built for virtual networks, a software security "appliance" that runs in a virtualized environment and enforces security policy on a per-virtual-machine basis. Data center administrators could pinpoint a broad range of virtual network security comprises and easily create roles-based security policies. Security policies could be continuously enforced on individual virtual machines (VM), even as they moved throughout the virtualized data center.

Now in its fourth release, Altor’s hypervisor-based software is a comprehensive security package featuring integrated intrusion detection (IDS), VM Introspection, security automation, and compliance assessment. Recently named the RSA Conference Innovator of the Year and a Gartner Cool Vendor, Altor delivers virtualization security solutions that protect some of the world’s most demanding virtual environments, including those of media giant Nielsen Corporation and the U.S. Army Human Resources Command.

Headquartered in Redwood Shores, Calif., Altor was founded in 2007 by security and networking experts from Check Point Software, Cisco and Oracle Corporation, and has received funding from Accel PartnersDAG VenturesFoundation capital, and Juniper Networks. On December 6, 2010 Juniper Networks announced it has acquired Altor Networks.
